‘Aquaman’ star Jason Momoa has entered into negotiations with Warner Bros. to voice the character of ‘Frosty The Snowman’ in a forthcoming live-action/CG hybrid animation.
David Berenbaum (Elf) will pen the script, Momoa will also produce with Geoff Johns, and Stampede’s Greg Silverman and Jon Berg.
“We know Jason’s a true human being filled with love, compassion and a deep connection to ohana … all of which is the living spirit of Xmas and Frosty,” Silverman said.
“From his role as a count in a land of ice and fire to the oceanic success we all had with ‘Aquaman,’ it felt only right to realize Jason this time in snow,” said Berg, who was an executive producer on “Aquaman.
‘Frosty the Snowman’ is a popular Christmas song written by Walter Rollins and Steve Nelson, and first recorded by Gene Autry and the Cass County Boys in 1950 and later recorded by Jimmy Durante. Frosty became so popular that the image was subsequently adapted to other media including a popular television special by Rankin/Bass Productions.
Best known for his role in ‘Frontier’ and playing ‘Aquaman’ across the DC Universe, Momoa was last seen in the AppleTV series ‘See’. His upcoming projects include Denis Villeneuve’s ‘Dune’ and ‘Sweet Girl’.
